Except metropolises, you will find a lot of interesting locations while exploring planets and some of them are populated territories such as settlements, mines, industrial complexes. They are often involved in territory wars between factions. You can own territories and build numerous structures such as accommodation, medical station, defenses, transportation pad, etc. Most locations will generate products or credits. You can increase location’s productivity by building infrastructures. Enemy factions will try to capture your territory sometimes, so you also need to build necessary defenses and hire security guards to protect your land.
